Culturejam celebrates Rye diversity

Since early November, Ryerson campus has played host to Culturejam, an annual series of events celebrating diversity through music, dance, food and more – and it’s about to have its grand finale.

The Ryerson Students’ Union (RSU) will cap off nine days of action – from a Diwali dinner and indigenous resistance talk to a food fair and multiculturalism panel – with the Culturejam showcase at the Winter Garden Theatre on Thursday, Nov. 14.

The showcase will feature performances from more than a dozen RSU groups, including Musicians@ Ryerson.

“We are using the showcase in a unique way,” says Eli Vandersluis, president of Musicians@Ryerson.

“We got 20 musicians that had never met each other and put them together through music… That’s quite a feat in itself.” The showcase is a fundraiser for the less fortunate. Admission is $2 or two canned goods.
